Between sea and mountains, enjoy an intense holiday in the Var

Head south! The indented coasts and red rocks of the Estérel, the beaches and the creeks, the pine forests and the scrubland, but also the rivers and the lakes… All these natural treasures await you during your next vacation in the Var.

Bathed in sunshine and nestled against the Mediterranean, the Var is a territory to discover absolutely. Here, seaside resorts with pastel facades give way to pine forests and creeks. Set sail and criss-cross the islands of Port Cros and Porquerolles. Back on land, visit the festive Saint-Tropez. Then don't hesitate to continue your journey towards Le Lavandou, Bandol, Port Grimaud or even Le Trayas. Then go a little further inland, to meet the villages of Bargèmes, Callian, Mons, Tourrettes or Cotignac. During your holidays in the Var, admire the heritage sites and savor the specialties made from olive oil in one of the Var mills. Continue your journey north, to the borders of this territory. You will find the marvelous colors of the emblematic Gorges du Verdon.

Holidays in the Var by the sea

With 300 days of sunshine a year, sublime islands and a still preserved coastline, the Var is an ideal sea destination. Coves, creeks and beaches await you for a little rest in the shade of the pines. Then it's time for swimming, aquatic hiking or scuba diving. Take advantage of the many nautical bases spread along the coast to try your hand at paddleboarding and sea kayaking. And when the mistral or the thermal wind picks up, let yourself be carried away by the sails of a catamaran or a kitesurfer. Finally, walk along the coastal path along the red rocks of the Estérel. Show and thrills guaranteed.

The Var on the land side

Inland, hiking is in the spotlight. On foot of course, but also on horseback or by bike through the emblematic forest massifs. Estérel, but also Maures, Sainte-Beaume or the Toulon mountains... The well-maintained and marked trails and paths criss-cross the Var for the greatest pleasure of sports enthusiasts and families. You will also find plenty of opportunities to try your hand at tree climbing, archery, orienteering or even caving and rock climbing. And for canoe enthusiasts, the sumptuous site of the Gorges du Verdon welcomes you for unforgettable descents.
